Terrorist ‘Osama bin London’ jailed for over seven yearsMarch 8th, 2008 - 2:24 pm ICT by admin
London, Mar.8 (ANI): A terrorist leader who called himself “Osama bin London” and recruited the July 21 bombers was jailed indefinitely yesterday.
According to The Telegraph, Mohammed Hamid, 50, organised a series of training camps and paint-balling sessions, telling the young Muslims that the 52 deaths in London on July 7 2005 were “not even breakfast to me”.
Tanzanian-born Hamid, of Hackney, east London, was found guilty of three counts of soliciting to murder and three counts of providing training for terrorism at an earlier trial.
Woolwich Crown Court heard yesterday that he had been jailed for two years for robbery in November 1980 and had other convictions for dishonesty.
Ordering him to serve a minimum seven and a half years, Mr. Justice Pitchers, said: “You used your charm and your knowledge of the Koran to influence others into terrorism. You will continue to be a danger not simply by your own actions but by your ability to influence the actions of others.” (ANI)
